Summary

Please note that OctaFX is unable to offer services to residents of the EU or the United Kingdom

OctaFX is an STP broker founded in 2011 that will appeal to all Forex traders, both beginners and professionals.  They have an excellent analytical section and offer a range of useful trading tools such as AutoChartist, copy trading, and an account monitoring service so you can learn anonymously from other successful traders.

Trader education for beginners is well-presented and platform support is almost unbeatable, with MT4, MT5 and cTrader all offered - but platforms are linked to account type and trading conditions.
